Phishing Alert: New “Amazon” Scam!

By Nicholas Stix

I just got the following fake email at 8:15 p.m.:

Your order has been succesfully [sic] cancelled. For your
reference, here's a summary of your order:

You just cancelled order #526-6855528-7758496 placed on
January 5, 2011.



Because you only pay for items when we ship them to you,
you won't be charged for any items that you cancel.

Thank you for visiting!

Earth's Biggest Selection

If you put your cursor over the “CANCELLED” and “” links, you’ll see that the URL is not for Amazon. Do not respond to the email; do not hit those links!
